The field of sparks gives the spider one more shock before petering out, and Mika adds a jolt of her own, leaving the foul stench of burning hair and charred chitin hanging in the air. Now free of the spell, the spider parries Huril scimitar with one thickly armored limb. Tyr is forced to shoot wide as he dodges the beast's fangs, still wet with his friend's blood.

Behind the creature, Jon climbs up the side of the bridge and lines up a shot, but something goes wrong as he pulls the trigger. A gout of flame shoots out between cylinder and barrel, coming uncomfortably close to blasting the flesh off the paladin's index finger, and forces the bullet to miss wildly.

misfire, your revolver is now broken, doubling its misfire range (advanced firearms don't explode on a second misfire)


The deputy pauses a moment to consider charging the spider with his boar spear, but decides instead to unshoulder his heavy crossbow and and attack from beyond the arachnid's reach. The conveniently loaded device launches its steel-tipped bolt straight into one of the spider's smaller eyes, bursting it with a small eruption of vitreous humour.
